Enhancing Your kdb+/q Toolkit: Real World Examples of Adverbs

Nuša Žnuderl's latest blog post uses five real-world examples to demonstrate how kdb+/q coders can improve their results by using adverbs and not using looping constructs.

They make code shorter, clearer and almost always more efficient than the alternative loopy modus operandi – all of which are qualities that differentiate code written by proficient q users from the rest."
